The Committee set up by the Kaduna State House of Assembly to investigate loans, grants, and project implementation from 2015 to 2023 during the administration of former Governor Nasir El-Rufai submitted its report on Wednesday.

The report implicated the former Governor and recommended that he should be probed for alleged abuse of office, awarding contracts without due process, diverting public funds, money laundering, and excessive borrowing, which left the state heavily indebted.

Chairman of the Ad-hoc committee, Henry Zacharia, presented the report during plenary on Wednesday.

The report alleged that due processes were not followed in securing some of the loans, and that El-Rufai and his commissioners were involved in these irregularities.

The House Committee recommended that El-Rufai and some of his officials indicted by the committee be further investigated by security operatives and anti-graft agencies.

Additionally, the committee urged for a thorough investigation of key officials who served in the El-Rufai administration.

The committee also sought the immediate suspension of the Kaduna State Commissioner of Finance, Shizer Badda, and the Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board.
